Gary Collins: Hey, everyone. This is Gary Collins, creator of The Primal Power Method. Make sure to check out my books, and buy them they are fantastic for anyone looking to get into a Primal/Paleo lifestyle, get healthy and lose weight.
Today I’m going to talk about a trending subject that is very close to my off‑the‑grid project. That’s why it’s in the off‑the‑grid category on YouTube. The thing that has become very popular is “Tiny House Living,” I guess they call it. I’ve seen programs on it. A couple have popped up on cable that I have watched.
I know this is an older article, but I have noticed it has started to show itself again on the web, so I thought it would be a good opportunity… well to call an idiot an idiot. Now remember this is a College Professor who teaches nutrition. He claims to have no idea how this diet worked, and is torn between eating healthy and following his “Twinkie Diet” model. This guy is either as stupid as it gets or a complete dishonest hack. Either way he should be no where near a University, let alone teaching at one. Unfortunately, this is just another example of our sad education and health system in this country.
He claims to have no ties to the “Junk Food” industry. Huh, I’ll bet good money that some, if not all, the junk food companies had something to do with this experiment and/or the media blitz.
Since I started my “Off The Grid Project” many of you have asked me how I found the my property. A few of you have even noted that it looks amazing, and I’d like to humbly agree. The best part it didn’t cost nearly what most of you think, and it is in the affordable price range for nearly everyone.
But as to the question of how I actually found it… Well, that is not an easy question to answer. It didn’t happen overnight, and there is no magic formula for finding a great place to get off the grid. As I have discussed previously, my property is unique to my wants and desires, and yours should be specific to your own goals as well.
Creating your own garden compost is about easy as it gets. You have all the materials you need in your garbage can, and in your yard. Not only is it free, but also helps reduce the amount of trash you throw away, and that gets put into land fills.
As you gain experience with gardening, I recommend you consider creating a compost pile. Compost is decayed organic matter that provided nutrients to plants; it is one of the organic gardener’s chief means of establishing a productive soil.
Nature engages in an eternal composting cycle as each year’s vegetative growth returns to the soil at the end of its life: trees drop their leaves and herbaceous plants die back. This spent plant material returns the goodness that went into creating them back to the earth to be used again and again.
